The Purple Line (Club Figure Skating)

The Purple Line gives Northwestern figure skaters the opportunity to continue their love of skating at the university level. This team competes against other colleges and universities during our competition season, and hosts an annual spring figure skating exhibition for friends and family. Membership on this team has fostered personal growth and added greatly to all of our Northwestern experiences!

We are a group of students with diverse backgrounds and interests that intersect at figure skating. We are in multiple undergraduate and graduate schools, and many of us wouldn’t have met if not for this team. 

This project will benefit the Northwestern community and those on Northwestern's campus who have a passion for figure skating. Competing on a club team can get quite expensive. Every year we need to pay for practice ice at competitions, which is often over $100 for just 15 minutes of ice time, and this practice time is crucial to perform well when we travel to large competitions like the Midwestern Synchronized Skating Championships. These expenses can quickly add up and make the team less accessible to Northwestern students who wish to join. Our goal is to make figure skating at Northwestern a possibility for all student skaters! 

In order to skate our best, we'll need to spend lots of time on the ice, especially at competitions. Getting a feel for the competition arena and practicing while away from our home rink is one of the best ways to ensure our team is ready to step on the ice and dazzle the judges! Your support will ensure that we can represent NU well at competition.

Please give to or share our campaign, every dollar counts!
